impact. but we have had a chance now, 3 1/2 years of a president obama administration. you either love it, hate it or you are indifferent. now he has a record. back in 2007, i think that we put him under the microscope -- as we should any candidate, particularly him because we knew so little about him. he wasn't in the public eye for a long time. now, though, i would expect the people are making decisions, are you better off than you were 3 1/2 years ago? is the world safer? do you think we are going in the right direction? those type of questions. his record has a far greater impact than when he said in 2007, but i could be wrong. >> sure, sure. i agree with you. i don't think this particularly speech is definitive, but it's a reminder obenghazi, for example, you have the same pattern of dishonesty in the obama white house that you had in the speech from 2007. the amazing thing is the degree to which the elite media tries to avoid all of this. they didn't cover it in twint 07. they don't want to cover it in 2012. but have you seen literally in 2 1/2 weeks aircraft pattern of breath-takin
admits that in the last four years, that's the obama years, the middle class has been buried. highest price of gasoline in the history. hits the middle class. the unemployment rate hits the middle class. the debt being piled up, hits the middle class. but then he goes on to say something which is frankly nutty. no republican is proposing a tax increase in the middle class. none, zero. there are no proposals to raise taxes on the middle class. who is proposing to raise taxes? obama? who has a whole range of tax increases in obamacare? obam a. biden pivots and charges the republicans with something totally false, after having atd mitted that in the time he was vice-president, the middle class was buried. i agree with paul ryan's characterization. buried by tax, buried by unemployment and buried by reg iewdle, it's buried by debt and a variety of government actions, under obama and biden. i am sure that he wishes he hadn't said it. but joe biden in that case, was sharing an insight into what's happened. >> greta: two-part question. what is the one question president obama doesn't want to
romney can make the case that there will be no change in the next four years because obama didn't deliver the change he promised four years ago, that he said he would lower the unemployment rate to 5.6%, but we've now had our 43rd month of above 8% unemployment. he said that family incomes would go up, but they've gone down $4,000 under his watch. he said that bush was unpatriotic for adding four trillion to the debt over eight years, he's added five trillion over just four years. so he needs -- americans don't want to have more of the same, and obama really tonight has to show how his second term would be different than the first instead of this forward stuff that we've been hearing from him. megyn: you know, joe, i took a look at those fox news polls, and marc's right, the overwhelming majority of americans want change, they don't want to stay the course, but the question is, who does that mean? whose policies do hay want to change? it's something like 95% of republicans want to change course, 51% of democrats and 77% of independents, but when you drill even deeper and ask, well, who's
with barack obama, number one. and that what mitt romney has to do is convince people that four years from now a mitt romney presidency will be better for their personal lives. they understand on the likability question of which the president beats mitt romney so handily, they're not about to convince all these people suddenly to turn around and say, oh, we like mitt romney more than we like president obama. what they're going to try and do is say you like him enough and he can do the job and he's better able to fix things. so he's not going to try and be bill clinton here, i feel your pain. but what he's going to try to do is say i'm focused on your concerns. >> can a debate like tonight's debate really change the direction of this campaign? >> i think it can accelerate or decrease momentum one way or another. and i went back and looked at 2004 for example when you had john kerry and george bush. in sort of late september bush was ahead of kerry by about seven points. after the first debate it was a two-point margin because john kerry did very well. then george w. bush came back and did bette
debate that barack obama had was four years ago. and the people he's used to sparring with are reporters. >> how did he prepare? how did the president prepare for this? >> we got 45 minutes in before we got a ryan budget mentioned. mitt romney made the choice to put ryan on the ticket. when we look at where the polls started to separate before the convention, right around when ryan was put on the ticket. when do the numbers on medicare and the polling start to go upside down for the republicans? when ryan is put on the ticket. yet we get 45 minutes through the debate before paul ryan is mentioned. he's the incarnation of the modern republican party which will inherit the power that you give to mitt romney since they will be governing from the house most likely. that is the key thing to remind people there is a governing of the republican party that already exists. it's like nailing gel oto the wall. no. you are tied to an actual institutional govern body which actually has a record, which actually is going to propose and vote for things that you actually put on your ticket. they are you
. obama: that's what we've done. romney: you've been president four years. you've been president four years. you said you'd cut the deficit in half. the cbo says we'll have a trillion dollar deficit each of the next four years, if you're reelected, we'll get to a trillion dollar debt. you have said before you'd cut the cef sit in half, and i love this idea of $4 trillion in cuts, getting closer to a balanced budget, except we still show trillion dollar deficits every year. that doesn't get the job done. let me come back and say why is it that i don't want to raise taxes. why don't i want to raise taxes on people? and actually you said it back in 2010, you said, look, i'm going to extend the tax policies that we have now, i'm not going to raise taxes on anyone because when the economy's growing slow like this, when we're in recession, you shouldn't raise taxes on anyone. well, the economy is still growing slow. as a matter of fact, it's growing much more slowly now than when you made that statement. and so if you believe the same thing, you just don't want to raise taxes on people. and
next year. >>> could there be trouble in par are dice for president obama and his one-time buddy, ben affleck. he had high hopes for president obama in 2008. but now affleck admits his feeling for the president are complicated. the actor blamed the president's record for his change of heart. >> brian: he wants him to be more liberal. so does matt damon. that's why he's disappointed. there you go. 12 minutes after the hour. next up, a u.s. border patrol agent shot and killed in the line of duty. so is the federal government failing to give our agents proper protection? we'll report. you decide. >> steve: and did you know having the government in your home for dinner? why are they telling you what to eat in your own house? the food police make a stop at your place. details ahead [ man ] ring ring... progresso this reduced sodium soup says it mahelp lower cholesterol, how does it work? you just he to eat it as part of your heart healthy diet. step 1. eat the soup. all those veggies and beans, that's what may help lower your cholesterol and -- well that's easy [ male announcer ] progresso
in america. i want to create 1 million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years. >> obama care is point number one. it is the example number one where he wants to put bureaucrats between you and your doctor, he believes that the government should tell you what kind of insurance you have to have. he believes that government should have a board of people that tell you what kind of care you can receive. my view is we fight for freedom in this country, i do not want an intrusive massive larger debt spending government that crushes the american dream. >> they like to call it obama care, well, let me tell you, i do care. i care about all the young people who are able to stay on their parents' plans now. i care about the seniors who are seeing lower prescription drug costs. i care about folks with pre-existing conditions who can't be denied care now. governor romney has promised that he would overturn obama care on its first day in office. which means -- which means he would kick nearly 7 million young people off their parents' plans. he would make seniors prescription drugs more expensive, yo
meant to say the last 10 years, and it came out wrong. this is fodder for the obama campaign. it will not change, i do not think, in a huge way, the course of events, buthere is no question the obama campaign folks, every time biden is out there, they are nervous about what he is going to say, how it comes out. they would prefer to have barack obama cleaning up barack obama this week, rather than joe biden cleaning up barack obama. >> what do you think? the vice presidential debate is coming up. >> it just so happens joe biden and paul ryan respect each other and get along well. those two were the ones that had allhe protestants. i think this will be a fun debate, and enjoyable debate. joe biden has a good sense of humor. you are not going to see him paint barack obama in his debate. >> i hope it is more interesting. yes, there were 50 million people calling the first debate, and the question i have is, for how long? i was sitting there thinking, ok, obama did not show up to play, and this is unbelievably borig. if i did n havto do this for a living, i would turn on a show i
for president and does obama is the improvement in the re-election year is where presidents get re-elected. >> the real world peggy alluded to. real medium incomes have fallen twice as much under the obama recovery as they did in the bush recession. at this point in time under ronald reagan's policies, which governor reagan has a 21st century application of jobs grew at five types the rate they are. the states with 17 golfers, republican golfers instituted reforms. those states are growing their economy and creating jobs at twice the rate the national one is. this is about policies. we know they've worked. there is no recovery in the history of any recessions or depressions that have been as slow and as poor as this one and the rescissions upwards -- >> yes, it does, dr. krugman. it's completely totally true. >> i don't make up numbers. >> well, but just look at them then. the fact of the matter is this is actually a fairly typical slow post-financial crisis recovery which is picking up speed so although it's terrible and i've been bitterly critical of policymakers in general for n
learned to argue really well and make your points years ago. >> michelle obama and ann romney with advice for their husbands. the first lady will campaign for her husband this afternoon in nevada. meantime, ann romney campaigned in the state yesterday where she tried to appeal to women voters. that as our battleground state polling shows today that president obama has lost support. just three points down from 12 last month. however, the president still holds formidable leads among women voters in ohio and virginia. joining me now -- the sight of tonight's debate. it's great to have you here. showing president obama losing support with women voters. why do you think that might be the the case there? >> i think that women voters are looking at mitt romney's policies and they're realizing that they're not good for women. economic policies. the health care policies. family planning. in florida, of course, medicare's a big issue. women really want to look at candidates that are going to support issues that help women and families and that's what's going on. i think in florida and around the co
and i am very disappointed in him -- obama four years ago and i am very disappointed in him. >> what made you decide to vote for mitt romney? >> i think he is the only one who could really get us out of this position that we are in. it can go on like this. i am against obama for what he did and taking 4 $5 billion out of our medicare system and putting it into obamacare. >> thank you for your calls. continue to comment if you want you on twitter and c-span.org. both presidential candidates will have campaign appearances tomorrow. we will have live coverage of president obama speaking at george mason university and later on mitt romney will be speaking in virginia. both of those will be live here on c-span. >> we need to tackle our nation ' as challenges. we need to save and strengthen medicare and social security. we're not going to scare seniors. we will save benefits for seniors and for my generation so that these promises are kept. they have laid out -- >> they say that we stole medicare and you have seen the ads and everything. nothing could be further from the truth. >> next thu
and spending policies are threatening the financial foundation of our country. every year since barack obama has been president,, the federal government has spent over a trillion dollars packard more than it has taken in. we have a $16 trillion national debt. we are mortgaging the a future of our children. the national debt today totals $50,000 for every man, woman, and child in in america. we can do better and we will be better when we elect mitt romney and paul ryan on november 6. president obama call would have us believe that this is somehow the new bubble. joe biden -- joe biden. there is the gift that keeps on giving. they would have us believe that somehow this is the normal. that this is the best america can be. they would have us be our best days as a nation are behind us. that up -- we don't believe that. we believe the 21st century will be another american century. we believe our best days are yet to come. we know that to do that, we have to have new leadership in washington d.c. and we need mitt romney and we need paul ryan. [applause] hunt i want you guys to go out for these nex
and since then, the obama campaign, they remind me a little bit of a 7-year-old losing a checker game and then instead of being frustrated at the outcome, they sweep the board off the table. the fact is is that if president obama's re-elected, as governor romney pointed out, we'll have continued chronically high unemployment, we're going to have continued massive debt instead of moving toward a balanced budget. we've had this week the fourth trillion dollar deficit under this president, health care premiums are going to continue to rise. up to 20 million americans will lose their employer-based health insurance under obama care, and they'll raise $716 billion from medicare. governor romney has a different approach that would move the country in the right direction and that's what they're frustrated about. >> let's talk about that approach and get to the bottom of this disagreement. governor romney says he will not increase the deficit with his tax cuts. he's saying he will not increase taxes on the middle class, so is he saying that if he cannot come up with enough loopholes and deduc
president obama as a candidate ran on four years ago, was bringing the nation together and yet, last night on the stage, it was mitt romney talking about how he had found bipartisanship with his health care plan and president obama had not with obamacare. >> it's part of the contrast in their records, when you look at governor romney work with a democratic legislature, 87% of the seats in the state house and state senate in massachusetts were held by democrats when he was the governor, and yet they were able to work across the aisle to get things done for the people of massachusetts. they cut taxes 19 times. they balanced the budget and got a rainy day fund and upgraded their credit rating in massachusetts. they brought unemployment down to 5.7%. and that's in sharp contrast. we've had our national credit rating downgraded as a result of president obama's policies. he's not worked across the aisle and we've had unemployment go up as a result of his policies. >> gretchen: although president obama's biggest critique of your candidate is that there simply are not enough details in his plan. s
has spent the last four years in a bubble with an adoring media. but i also know that barack obama is a very excellent debater. he knows -- he will be going over the mistakes that he made and i think that he hrs is going to be much better and much better prepared in the next debate. this was really important. i saw where i think 67 million people watched. and one of the most important things about this, gret awas that they have spent -- the obama campaign has spent hundreds of millions of dollars portraying mitt romney as a bain capital capitalist, driving the unfavorables up, especially in the swing states and mitt romney, last night, came across as a person of capability, of vision and who knows what is best for america. i think that was really the most important part of that whole debate. >> greta: what do you think happened to president obama? historically, he has given speeches that have been dazzling. he has been very successful on the campaign trail. i don't need to tell but that. what happened last night? >> i think he spent four years in a bubble with an adoring media. mea
and was promised three years ago and is below eight, 7.8. is it enough to give obama a reshot of momentum? >> it's certainly a boost. is it a sugar high? these numbers bounce around. chris: good for the next month, though. >> good for the next month but the final judgment will come the weekend before the election. if this ends up being revised upward and, you know, there is a problem right before election day, look, the job creation number is still anemic. we're still bouncing along on the ground of 1.9% g.d.p. so economic growth is still very slow. but certainly it is a great talking point for the president and on the face of it, more people are participating. they haven't given up, you have a percent of people joining the labor force trying to get jobs. and it is a good number. >> the numbers for july and august were both revised way upward. chris: it could have been so much worse. >> they have a trend here where we're going to gain at least 100,000 jobs a month. >> but a lot of the creation was in government jobs and that's something the republicans will jump on and manufacturing is still rea
or patronizing. he dealt with obama the way that obama should i dealt with him. >> in the 50 years of presidential debates, i do not think there has been a debate in which there was such a decisive win in the absence of a gaffe. if you have one like the one with ford in eastern europe, others along the way, it is decisive. it is usually a muddled outcome, or one of the bad moments, like, i knew jack kennedy, you're no jack kennedy. but there was no sound bite in this. one other point. the moderator. i know jim lehrer has taken a lot of abuse because it lost control of the debate. we want a moderate and not to be in control. why should he be in control? the debate ought to be about the participants. i think if the moderator, ever in the future, says we have to stop this and move on, i would like to hear what candidates say, why? besides we have to have six segments instead of five. >> i have to agree on this one. the criticism of jim lehrer is off base. i noticed in the debate from top to time, obama weblog to him as if to say, help me, jim. that was not jim lehrer's role. >> in tha
will that affect the voter's opinions? look at what happened four years ago. watch this. barack obama spoke more than two minutes longer than john mccain during the second debate in 2008. and during the third debate, there was an even bigger gaffe. obama talked a full five minutes longer than mcain. one major reason for the extra time obama received was the rebuttal time for mccain's numerous attacks. we're going to see what tonight's exchange brings since the moderator promised more interaction between these two candidates. candy's back at the debate hall in denver watching all of this unfold. it's getting crowded. i understand behind you. >> it is. think wedding right now. you're beginning to see folks come into this hall and on one side, will be the obama campaign supporters and on the other side will be the romney campaign supporters or at least in those front rows. we see people like nancy pelosi is here et cetera. you'll see the wives sort of right in the podiums are tilted. so, president obama will actually, he'll be this way. president obama will be looking at his wife who's sitting on t
8-year-old daughter who came in and asked, why is president obama so mad? >> there you go. >> walked by the screen. >> i think that's a really, you know, good way of putting it. it looked as though he was either at the wrong debate, he was in parallel play. and it also looked to me as though he has the classic presidential case of no one has spoken to him that way in four years. and i think that's -- >> say that again. stop and say that again because chris matthews said it last night, that maybe he's heard "hail to the chief" one too many times. say that again. >> no one has spoken to him that way -- no one has tried to interrupt him in four years. and i think it showed. >> you're surrounded as president by yes-men and totis. that's what happens. everyone agrees with you. >> that's a little harsh. >> but it's just -- >> i don't think that's the case. >> everyone wants to agree with the president. no one ever says to the president, you know, it's hard to say to the president you're wrong, sir, no one gets in your face, no one interrupts you, no one tries to tell the ref to control the
's a larger group because you have the self-employed. over the obama years, more and more people have left the labor force completely. especially older people between 50 and 56 that live off their savings and ira's before they should. some of those folks have returned in part-time work essentially in home-based businesses. about 110, 115,000 jobs are created in the establishment survey or the employer survey. but about 850 in the household survey, that would imply 700,000 or about 5% of american families have established a home-based business. it's completely implausible that that could happen. >> okay. so you say it's completely implausible and you are not the first economist to say this. and the only sample in terms of teeny fraction something like 55,000 people they call. is it possible the bureau of labor statistics extrapolate out from that? did they possibly get their estimate wrong? >> i think it's possible they got their estimate wrong. more likely is that these folked do have home based businesses but they don't earn very much money. consider the reporter getting laid off by the t
that we don't want what he's been selling for the last year. >> president obama at that rally in denver earlier today. very, very different from what we saw in the debate last night. watch this. >> the last point i'd make before -- >> two minutes is up, sir. >> i think i had five seconds before you interrupted me was -- the irony is that we've seen this model work really well in massachusetts. >> all right. moments like that may have contributed to what so many people out there see as the president's debate loss. our cnn/orc poll of viewers, people who actually watched the debate, finds that 67% think mitt romney was the clear winner while only 25% think president obama won. let's get some more now from our chief political analyst gloria borger. gloria, how damaging was this debate to president obama last night? >> i think we have to let the polls come in. and we'll let the voters decide. but i think you saw from the way the president was behaving on the stump this morning that even he knows that this was a pretty damaging debate for him. look, mitt romney showed up as somebody who was
. how would you respond. >> we have seen obama over many, many years but not seen romney. those of us in the business and republican debates did. but the independents and democrats haven't had a chance to see the guy. all they have heard the vilification of him in negative ads it is not so much obama's performance that structured the debate. it is romney's performance. the question is why was romney so good? >> steve: excellent. congratulations on your new book mr. morris. >> thank you, we'll talk about it next week . globall governorance taking over the globe. >> steve: i hate it when that happens. >> gretchen: see you next week. >> brian: next on the run down. oh, joe, here you go again. >> will you guys sit down if you have seats? thank you. i didn't realize you didn't have seats, i apologize . my mother would kill me if a woman was standing for me this long. i apologize. >> brian: stand up, chuck. another biden classic coming your way. >> gretchen: a dog sneaks out of his home and tracks down his owner in the hospital miles away. >> steve: first happy birthday. steve miller, he's
of president obama, whose every effort to boost the economy these past two years has been stymied by republicans. again and again they have shown that they would rather see the country suffer than do anything that might help obama's re-election. there is rough justice in the way things are playing out, having spent the last year wrongly blaming the president for high unemployment, republicans can only stand by helplessly as the unemployment rate goes down at the worst possible moment for them." and they also went on to try and question the numbers and say that people had given up and there are other reasons why the numbers had gone down. >> i like joanne awful lot. but to say republicans have been standing by trying to do nothing, andy, you know what? we disagree. >> i think there's some argument for it. >> we disagree. the president believes that we didn't build it. that individuals don't cause the economy to explode. he believes that you grow the economy from a traditional keynesians approach. you let the federal government spend trillions of dollars, and good things will happen
at the kitchen table and spend his energy and passion for two years fihting for obama care instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. >> i have my own plans, not the same as simpson-bowles but in my view the president should have grabbed it if he wanted to make adjustments take it, go to congress and fight it. >> that's what we have done, make adjustments and putting it before congress right now, $4 trillion plan. >> you have been president four years, you have been president four years, you said you would cut the deficit in half, we still have trillion dollars deficits, a we will be have a trillion-dollar deficit each of the four years if you are reelected we will get to a $20 trillion debt. >> rose: it will be seen if romney can keep up the momentum. we begin this evening with analysis of chris matthews of msnbc, welcome. >> thank you, charlie. >> rose: as you watched the debate last night, what was your reaction to what you were seeing, b, why do you think it was that way, and, c, where are we going from here? >> well, i think governor romney knew it would be a wide open format a
